At last, you've come to the obligatory links page. These are a few
of my favorite sites on the Web listed by category. And please, if any of you notice any
out of date links, email me and I'll

checking out. If you're a fan, you owe it to yourself to give it a
The reason I added writer Cory Doctorow's site here is because he wrote one of my favorite SF short stories, Craphound. He also gets an 'A' in Web design for his site's look, which makes use of those old adds for chemistry sets and other boyish gizmos they used to put in comic books. The site contains excerpts from his many articles and nonfiction pieces as well as his growing body of short stories. You can also download his new novel for free.
Editor Warren Lapine has done a wonderful thing for the genre magazine market. He publishes six magazines, including Science Fiction Chronicle, Weird Tales, and Fantastic Stories (formerly Pirate Writings), under a protective umbrella.

The Atlanta Radio Theatre Company
As you will be able to deduce from the following links, I am a huge fan of radio theatre, and the ARTC is my favorite troupe still performing this lost art. I have several of their works, and they are all excellent.
Seeing Ear Theatre is The Sci-Fi Channel's source for classic SF radio as well as adaptations, author readings and original stories. If you have RealAudio, you can listen to great works for free.
This is a wonderful site maintained by Jerry Stearns. It has tons of links to different SF radio sources, including lessons on the craft of audio theatre production. This is a great jumping-on point for SF radio and the Old Time Radio hobby.

Scott Reilly's informative spec-fic writing blog.
I wish I'd thought of this. This is an alphabetical database of spec-fic markets that lists word lengths, pay rates, and what type of fiction they publish. Clicking on the magazines title will bring you to each publication's guidelines. This is truly one stop shopping for all your market needs.
Another quick and easy way to search for markets. Just type in what you're looking for and it pulls up related magazines. It even brings up publications that aren't SF but publish SF stories.
This online currency converter is a must if you're writing for Canadian or overseas publications. It's also quick and easy to use.

I'm out of the collecting game, but Dick Schwartz and the fine crew of Atlanta's largest comic retailer supplied my monthly fix via the mail for several years. If you're in the Atlanta area, or need a new mail order service, drop by their website and check them out. And tell them I sent you, OK?
Longtime friend Amy Gradin does some cool photography. We've been planning on doing a book together for a few years now. Until that pans out, you can check out some of her stuff here.
